Mike Tyson

Date of Birth: 6/30/1966
Rookie Card Year: n/a
Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Once the most feared fighters of all-time, Mike Tyson's dramatic rise and eventual crash in the world of boxing was nothing short of epic. With a dominating ring presence of 5'10" and 233 lbs, and a ferocious, pitbull-like personality to match, Tyson's bouts were often legendary. The worst seems to be behind him. In recent years, Mike Tyson cards and memorabilia have been making a comeback as a generation looks  back fondly at the boxer's in-ring accomplishments.

Mike Tyson retired in 2006 with a 50-6-2 professional record. What's truly impressive is that of his 50 wins, 44 of them came by knockout. Long referred to as one of the hardest hitters to ever set foot in the ring, tangling with Mike Tyson could leave you scarred for life.

His marriage to actress Robbin Givens and  legal issues outside the ring brought paparazzi-like fame. Tyson continued to  be a celebrity even when his boxing career began to struggle. Unfortunately this fame was often at the expense of others as Tyson's violent temper and personality often got the best of him.

Once retired, life outside of the ring was a struggle. Tyson eventually regained minor credibility after being cast in cameo roles in a couple of films, including and most notably, The Hangover.

Mike Tyson has several trading cards on the market, many of which are autographed. Because of the small boxing market and method of distribution, Tyson's official rookie card is debatable. Most of his early cards are more oddball in nature.His hobby debut came in 1986 with a sticker in 1986 Panini SuperSport, a European release. Unbelievably, the first traditional and widely available pack-inserted Mike Tyson cards wouldn't arrive until 2006 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball.

In 2012, Upper Deck announced a partnership with Tyson which produced additional cards and autographed memorabilia. In the past, other Mike Tyson autograph cards have been released by Topps, Leaf and Sportkings.
